Yesterday was a beautifully foggy day in Duluth. Just take a look at the Aerial Lift Bridge.
We took a walk on the Lakewalk in Canal Park after breakfast and decided to take some finished photos of the Liesl cardigan.
I’m teaching a class on this pattern beginning at the end of June. This is the class sample, so it will be on loan to the shop for a while before it makes it into my permanent wardrobe.
My version of Liesl has the high neck, full body length, and 3/4 sleeves. I only used two skeins (360 yards)! When I originally bought the yarn, I was sure to set aside extra of the same dye lot because I couldn’t believe that I could get a whole sweater of such small yardage. There was only a little bit left, but I managed to finish without cracking open a third skein.
Oh, and despite all the trouble I had taking accurate photos of this sweater in progress, the color looks pretty good in these.
